LENTEN SEAFOOD DINNER
Knights of Columbus Council #4761 will have a Lenten Seafood Dinner every Friday during Lent. Eat in or carry out! We will be serving from 5:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Nativity Community Center. Soda, bottled water, and desserts are available. The Dinners are $8.00 a plate.
In an effort to beautify the grounds in front St. Mary's Church Parish Office, we have begun a bricked area which can be used as a prayer place. Remember your loved ones in a special way by purchasing a memorial brick(s) to complete this area. By purchasing a brick you are not only creating an area for prayer and remembering your loved ones but also helping St. Mary to reduce the financial debt. You can purchase your memorial brick through the Online Giving tab or call the Church Parish Office for more information.
We are looking for Auction Items for the Steak Dinner on April 14, 2018. If you or someone you know would be interested in donating any items, please bring them to the Parish Office. If you cannot get them to us just call the Parish Office (985-537-3204) and we can make arrangements to pick them up. Deadline for donations is Friday, April 6, 2018.
STAIN GLASS WINDOW #12
Continuing with the descriptions of our stained glass windows and moving clockwise from the altar:
Window #12 - CHRIST
Pax - Latin word for peace, symbolic of the peace we achieve through Christ.
Serpent on Tau Cross - This refers to the passage, "Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of Man be lifted up." (John 3:14)
Pelican - a pelican, feeding its young from the blood of it's own breast, is a story often told that the pelican tears open its own breast to feed her young in time of famine. So Christ shed His blood for man.
Crown of Thorns with Three Nails - symbolizes the crucifixion of Christ.
I.N.R.I. - This is an abbreviation rather than a monogram. The letters are the first letters of the Latin phrase, Iesus Nazarenus Rex Iudaeorum, which means, "Jesus the Nazarene The King of the Jews" (John 19:19)
To see pictures/descriptions of windows 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 or 11, see bottom right of this page "St. Mary's Stain Glass Windows."
